The Libre only has 2 fonts: BitStream Vera Sans & BitStream Vera Serif. None reading at 200% zoom with reflow on.

[QUOTE=Nate the great;704282]No, it's not just a Jetbook. The Libre is actually the better deal. Aluratek released a firmware update that includes Adobe DE support. This means you can buy DRMed ebooks without having to remove the DRM.


re the firmware update that includes Adobe DE support meaning one can buy DRMed books w/o having to remove the DRM? Is this corrent? The one I just bought has V15. Is there are newer update. I guess I just hook up to the Aluratek web site & update that way? Thanks for your help. I was just told by my local library that Libre does not accept DRMed books, so I'm confused.....

Maybe the library uses a list of supported devices that doesn't include the Libre, but yes, it does read Adobe DRM pdf and epub formats (not DRM mobi/prc, though).

I'm still on the V15 firmware, that will work with DRM files out of the box.
